Happy Hump Day, ladies!
Is it just me, or does it feel like baby #2 sort of gets the short end of the stick? It's like survival mode. By now, you're an expert, and you know what you need and you're not really into the idea of wasting time with things you don't.
That's totally how I feel about my baby registry. My best friend was looking it over the other day and said "i'm really not thrilled about the lack of fun things on your registry" but we've got what we need, and there are only a few things we could use this time around!
I thought I would share my must haves with you for a second (or third or fourth!) baby, and I would love if you would share some of yours with me!
Ya'll, this thing is the rolls royce of strollers as far as i'm concerned. It has so many configurations and the wheels are something special! If you follow me on snap (@absolutelykylie) you saw me gushing about it last weekend. Even if you're having your first baby, I HIGHLY recommend registering for this beauty, and you can always purchase the second seat later down the line!
I am obsessed with this baby! It's so comfy and padded, perfect for those little newborns. Sawyer hated his carseat something fierce, and i'm convinced it was because of how hard and uncomfortable it was, but I love how this one is like a lazy boy for a baby, and it doesn't hurt that it has some of the best safety features around.
This one is specific to you pumping/breast feeding mamas, but it totally applies to the bottle feeding mamas out there too! Most insurances will provide you with a breastpump free of charge, but if there is one thing I learned from nursing Sawyer for an entire year (and pumping 10000 times a day at work!) was that a spare set of parts always come in handy. If you're planning on bottle feeding your babe, I would just toss some of your old used bottles, and pick up a new set. I think there is something nice about starting fresh!
4) Petunia Pick Bottom Boxy Backpack
More babies = less arms. It's science, people. With a toddler to chase, and a newborn to hold, you're going to need to stay as hands free as possible! I love the backpack feature of this diaper bag. It has plenty of room for everything you need, and it is darn cute to boot!
5) A little something special
Every new baby deserves a little something special that is theirs. Baby sister is going to have a ton of hand-me-downs from her big brother, but every one of her blankets and swaddles can't be blue, so I made sure to register for a few little girly things that would be special, and only hers. Plus, I can't even handle the cuteness of all the floral!!
Remember how I said we're all experts this time around? Choosing where to register is a big part of that! I absolutely love the experience at Baby Cubby. Not only do they have all of the things you'd ever need for your little babe, but its more than just shopping. Baby Cubby is truly a community for moms and dads alike. They have a mission to encourage and support parents, and they truly take away that overwhelming feeling that seems to linger every time you welcome a new baby into your family. They provide the safest, and trendiest baby gear, at incredible prices, all while never making you feel like you're being "sold stuff". I have absolutely loved my experience and I couldn't recommend checking them out more! You can learn more about their mission here.
Okay, I know I missed a ton of things, so I want to hear from YOU. What is on your second or third or even first time baby registry that I missed? Any must haves that i'm forgetting about? Let me know below!
Thanks so much for reading!
Until Next Time
